England eves have edge over South Africa in World Cup semi-final

ENGLAND have given themselves a huge advantage to win the Women's World Cup by being able to stay in Bristol for a few days before playing their semi-final against South Africa on Tuesday at The Brightside Ground.

West Indies ended the tournament sixth on four points from their last two victories over Pakistan Women and Sri Lanka Women, with all three teams along with fifth placed New Zealand Women suffering elimination.

But Matthews was hit in front to Hartley and lbw in the 24 over and Deandra Dottin (7) missed a sweep at off-spinner Heather Knight and was also lbw 20 balls later at 73 for four in the 27th over.

While England boast of a strong batting line-up led by their opening batswoman Tammy Beaumont, the tournament's leading run-getter with 372 runs from her seven innings, South Africa will hope for skipper Dane van Niekerk, the 2017 World Cup's highest wicket-taker (15 from six matches), will rip apart the home side's batting.

In spite of high demand and lack of suitable supply, stretched buyer affordability continues to act as a price brake, Rightmove said.

But the burden has been shared throughout the competition, with Nat Sciver scoring a pair of centuries and captain Heather Knight a regular contributor with bat and ball.

Wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor was dismissed for nought, the second wicket to fall after sending a thick edge off Deandra Dottin to Hayley Matthews with only 54 on the scoreboard. Both sides surpassed the 300-mark on that occasion, making 678 runs in total, the highest cumulative score in women's one-day worldwide history.

Fletcher finished with three wickets for 33 runs from her 10 overs.

Sciver's four-over spell ended with three wickets for just three runs, and one maiden.

"Kemar's return is welcomed as he was one of the best fast bowlers in Tests in the recent past for us", chief selector Courtney Browne said.

On the other hand, back from a 59-run loss to Australia, the South African skipper believed taht the pressure is on the hosts to proceed to the final.

Knight added: "I would like to think that if we can be successful this summer, getting to the final or even lifting the trophy, the game is in a much better place to make the most of it than it was in the past, in terms of getting more people involved in the game". "In that sense, I'm very proud of the girls, it's our first semi-final since 2000", she added.
